I like the RC cars, but I can only afford the cheapo ones. I have a Bobby Labonte GP, an orange WCC Hardtail, and a Harley roadking. I'm fixing to get a GTO.

lets see...

I have a BUNCH of RC stuff...RS4 nitro MT (not the newer MT2)
probably 5 different bodies
a bunch of onroad electric stuff (motor, batteries, wheels/tires, kick a$$ charger, plus some)

Kits are DEFINATELY the way to go. RTR stuff is more expensive in the long run.

I had an RC10 back when they were new and hot.

I'm a backup driver for a RC Truck team here, Tattooed White Trash Racing Team. Only a backup driver, tho. Can't afford my own right now.
